Just doing my part to keep the economy, as it currently exists, alive.

The first one is a 14" HP Chromebook for $40. I just want something simple with a decent size screen and good battery life. It’ll probably replace an older iPad for which I have new plans.

The second one is an Acer all-in-one touchscreen system for $50. The processor isn’t much, just a Pentium of some sort, but it’s an 1155 chip and I can throw in something a lot faster out of my collection of spare parts. The other interesting thing about it is that it appears to use a low-profile PCIe video card, and it looks like it can easily be replaced, something that I did not expect. There’s probably nothing available to make it a good folding machine, but anything I could toss in there should be better than stock. A 1030 or 1050 should fit, although with some of the thicker ones I might have to leave off the back of the computer which, in my house, is absolutely normal.
